ok..a little distraction from xtians-vs-everyone else/prolife-vs-prochoice posts...i got home today, and the first thing out of my dh's mouth was, ''you'll never guess what i got in the mail today! a notice from a collection agency!"
me:''from the dentist's office?"
dh:"yeah! can you believe that crap! they never sent me a bill, but turned it over to a collection agency! i went and paid it right away, hoping to keep it off my credit report, but..can you believe that!?!"
me:''yeah, i can. i asked you 3 mos ago if they sent the remainder of the bill, you said 'no'. why didn't you call and find out?"
dh:"its not my job to do that! they should've made sure i received the bill. they said it got sent to our old address."
me:''but the collection notice came here? (laughing at this, but totally shocked that he wouldn't check-up himself..)are you telling me you think you are right to just assume you didn't have a bill...(cont)

I don't see it as morally or ethically wrong, I see it as simple irresponsibility because it is ultimately his carelessness that caused the bill to go to collections.

I don't think your conversation had any thing that was morally/ethically wrong violated. Men have the tendency to forget about bills such as the Dentist Bill. With the way this economy is heading towards, I honestly wouldn't worry too much when it comes to your credit score because almost half of our country has horrible credit. With that being said, please don't ruin your evening with your husband because of a dentist bill.
